Directions

Take the largest die from the set and cut two label shapes from Cardstock color #1. From cardstock color #2, cut out two label shapes from the second largest die in the set. Center the smaller labels on top of the larger labels, glue in place.

 

Trace and cut out the bunny pieces from cardstock according to the patterns. Center the pink inner ears onto the white ears and glue in place.

 

On one of the layered labels, arrange the bunny’s face. First, place the head in the center, place the two ears behind the top of the head and glue in place with pop dots. Use the fine tip marker to draw in the eyes, mouth and whiskers. Punch a heart out of the pink cardstock and glue in the middle for the nose. Tie a bow with the ribbon and glue in place below the bunny’s neck.

 

Cut the shanks off the backs of the buttons with the shank remover. Arrange buttons below the bunny and glue in place with pop dots.

Take the 1 ” strip and score ” in from the edge on both sides along the 7 ” length. Next, divide the length into three 2 ” sections and score vertically down. Place 3/16” double stick tape along the ” scored edges. Fold up the piece into a “U” and snip at the center sections to make tabs.

On the back side of the undecorated layered labels, place the U-shaped gusset, adhering with the double stick tape. Now, center the decorated layered label on the other side. Now, you have your treat holder.

 

Punch a ” hole on either side of the gusset about ” down from the top. Take the remaining ribbon and thread through the holes, knotting the ends, for the handles. Place candy inside gusset area. 2008 Ben Franklin Crafts, Inc.
